Visions of Time Travel: Nick Georgiou + Chris Marker

6A is an experimental time-lapse video project by artist Nick Georgiou. While the work is still in progress, “6A” tells the story of a paper sculptor and his relationship to the cities he works in (Tucson/NYC). His sculptures are products of their environment. Whether a piece eventually takes the form of a human, still life, or animal depends on how he experiences a particular location. The film explores technological themes along with documenting the ever-changing natural landscape.

REMEMBRANCE OF THINGS TO COME is one of the last works by master film essayist Chris Marker (1921 – 2012). Ostensibly a portrait of photographer Denise Bellon, Rememberence… focuses on the two decades between 1935 and 1955, the film leaps and backtracks, Marker-style, from subject to subject, to a wide-ranging history of surrealism, of the city of Paris, of French cinema and the birth of the cinémathèque, of Europe, the National Front, the Second World War and Spanish Civil War, and postwar politics and culture.

World-renowned photographer/book editor Eric Kroll presents the fantastically obsessive 1960’s NYC photo archive of “Arthur”, who incessantly made and collected 8mm films and photos of women with long HAIR! Come see EV transformed into a floor to ceiling salon of Arthur’s incredible photographs and collages! Writes Kroll, “Proof of Arthur’s intense obsession for women’s hair is in the hours of 8mm Kodachrome home movies he made of unsuspecting young women milling about Washington Square Park and the beach at Coney Island. Or the hours and hours he spent cutting up and preserving newspaper, magazine and comic images of damsels with long hair or his extensive collection of rare 1950s “Stan’s Photos” of women with hair down to the ground!”

Sick and twisted videos by (the late great) Mike Kelley: Blind Country, Paul McCarthy: Pinocchio Pipenose Household Dilemna and Ryan Trecartin: Temp Stop.  Tonight’s visceral shock-schlock exists in an alternate landscape beyond the “normal” and “desirable”. The videos are queasily captivating, unlocking our cravings for brilliant social commentary rooted in celebratory corruption and gorgeous perversion. $1 Yoohoo and pork rinds.1mikekelley1trecartin
